Here on the amazingly beautiful, and ever so sunny island of Mykonos, it’s hard to believe that this is what I am lucky enough to call work! The Greek people are amongst the friendliest I’ve encountered on my travels, and the laid back lifestyle makes this country a joy to visit, time and time again.
Yesterday, I spent the afternoon in the sun (covered in sunscreen of course!) leading an interactive Belvedere cocktail workshop with a very special group of bartenders from across the island. All of the drinks included local Greek herbs such as thyme, rosemary, and louisa, as well as exceptionally fresh fruit and every variety of honey you can imagine. In the end, 3 groups excelled with drinks that I could have enjoyed all day, responsibly of course, by the beach. Thanks to Melina and the rest of the Greek team for an amazing afternoon and to Spyros for being a rock star in general. Also a big shout out to Angelos from Thessaloniki for…well, just because ;)
